Adventure

Hiking the Jordan Trail

I am hiking the Jordan Trail starting from the very north of this beautiful country at Umm Qais right down to the south at Aqaba and the Red Sea. It is an exciting new challenge with 675km ahead. I am self-supported and will be carrying all my own kit and camping along the way. My backpack is around 15kg - it’s going to be a challenge.

The north will be characterised by tiny villages, magnificent castles, ancient forests and - quite possibly - mud! It is the season for rain and we could face floods. The south gives way to the desert with deep gorges and the red and gold sands of Wadi Rum.

I have some fantastic sponsors on board who are supporting the endeavour.

Battleface who do brilliant travel insurance for people like us. It covers FCO red countries, Covid medical expenses and you can even buy it when you are already on your trip.

Craghoppers whose kit I used to walk across the whole of Morocco. It is really hard wearing, comfortable and perfectly designed for long hikes. It is also award winning for its sustainability.

NTT DATA UK Diversity & Inclusion Team who have been staunch supporters and who are truly committed to diversity and supporting and encouraging women.

Waatr who make self-cleaning, UV water purification bottles.  They believe that everyone has a right to safe drinking water and so do I.

You can follow the expedition on all social media starting from 1st December.
